to put his time. >> brown: well, you know, he spoke about the economy, getting the economy right first and foremost. he said "more than ever foreign policy is economic policy." did that sound right to you? >> i think that's right and i think this is a man who's grown up, really, in the political military side of foreign policy and national security and i think one of the challenges will be for him to recognize that the economic instrument in trade is really very important. if you look at asia, the coin of the realm in asia is trade and economics and, you know, if we're going to have a rebalancing toward asia, it needs to be an economics and trade overwhelmingly. so he's got, i think, a real opportunity to help lead the administration in using all of our instruments for national power influence, particularly economic and trade. >> brown: what do you think -- i mean, i know what you think about -- we talked about this in your last book about the need for economic thinking, i guess, changing the way we think about the world. but do you think that the administration has understood that wel

for the first time in three years as european credit woes continue to weigh on the global economy. officials announce on tuesday that nearly 200 million people worldwide were jobless in 2012. that's an increase of more than 4 million from the previous year. officials say unemployment grew not only in western countries but also in east asia and the middle east. nay say european debt problems affected emerging economies by hurting trade. youth unemployment is also on the rise. people aged 15 to 24 are counted for over a third of the tot number. officials are urging governments to boost job training programs for young people. looking ahead officials say global unemployment will continue to rise this year to over 220 million. they site the sluggish global economic recovery as a reason. south korean journalts have voted toyota motors camry car of the year. representatives from the japanese automaker collected the trophy for the u.s. built sedan at a ceremony in seoul. the journalists praised the cars price competitiveness. it beat 44 models introduced last year including vehicles by bmw. toyota e
, the philippine economy is finally emerging as one of the most exciting in asean. growth in the third quarter of 2012 was an impressive 7.1%. nearly matching the pace of china. filipinos who go overseas to work make valuable contributions to the nation's economy but more and more citizens are finding they're rich enough to go abroad but not for work, for fun. nhk world has more. >> reporter: the philippine capital, manila, is a city that's changing. the economy is booming and new opportunities abown. abound. as the nation's middle-class expands, so does personal consumption. but people aren't just buying things. they're going places, too. trips to japan reached a record at this travel agency last year. a vacation to japan used to be a dream for most people. but for the middle class, it's now a real possibility. in order to get more tourists to go to japan, this travel agency offers different types of tour packages to hokkaido, among many other places. the president of the company and her staff are busy planning new trips for spring. >> for this year we will concentrate on things that we shoul
the economy? we have a former white house political director under president george w. bush and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. >> great to be here. >> eric: matt, let me start with you. how do we get here? >> well, you know, i think about the president i served, george w. bush. when he came to office, he really was concerned about trying to if i understand a way to reach across the aisle because clearly bill clinton left the presidency with high numbers. he worked with ted kennedy. he worked with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a way to bring right and left together. i happening the number-1 failure of president obama is not the economy. it's his failure to find a way to bring us all together. >> eric: chris, what about that? >> well, i think it's easy to put it on president obammasm the fact is, this has been building and arguably buildi
created. think about where we are today. what was the colonial economy? these are all drugs. .. and now we have turkish coffee, english tea time and of course of the fortunes that drove a lot in the european development. and so, long story short the reason have the world got colonized in some ways is because a bunch of old white men in europe couldn't get up so there you have sex, drugs and international relations but i tell the story because what we consider drugs is important so when the white males of european ancestry that drafted this 1961 convention got to read some of their favorite drugs that they got accustomed to policy, alcohol, you know, all these things they love to do. but coca was something indigenous people used and is the attitude that made them say this is forbidden, this causes degeneration, this is terrible stuff. but coca in its natural form is a very beneficial and relatively harmless. it's a very mild stimulus in my opinion and my personal experience two cups of coffee basically, so this thing that's hard to get across people in the united states these policy makers
wasn't expecting him to give a detailed analysis of the economy today and what needs to be changed. i'm not suggesting that's not important but i was hearing him speak about lofty ideas of equality and freedom >> brown: yet he did point to some specific things as we heard in gwen's set-up >> that is true when it came to global warming or addressing the global climate change, i think we have to be willing to address these things. >> brown: trey grayson, what did you hear? >> i heard a pretty visionary, pretty articulate speech, articulate in a progressive vision for the country. i would agree with ramesh that the lack of the economy or references to the deficit in his speech was a little surprising given that that's the... probably the biggest issue of today (audio is) the fiscal cliff and everything else. and the fact that that was the number one issue on voters' minds even at the thematic level that was missing and a bit of a surprise >> brown: to stay with you, were you surprised by the emphasis on things such as gay rights or climate change, some of the specifics that he did point
washington d.c. virginia, maryland, the colonial economy was tobacco. these were all drugs and the first time a lot of these drugs were introduced back to europe people looked at them with revulsion. tobacco is a bizarre thing. why would you put fire and smoke into your mouth? .. >> and now we have, you know, turkish coffee, we have english tea time, and, of course, the tobacco fortunes that drove u.s. and european development. and so long story short, the reason half the world got colonized in some ways is because of a bunch of old white end men in europe couldn't get it up. [laughter] so there you have sex, drugs and international relations in a nutshell. [laughter] but i tell the story because what we consider drugs is important. and so when the mostly white males of european ancestry who drafted this 1961 international convention got to exempt all of their favorite drugs, the ones they were partial to and got accustomed to; coffee, alcohol, tea, you know, all these things that they loved to do. but coca was manager that indigenous -- was something that indigenous people
. accordingly, the house stands it's just -- it's terrible for the economy. it seems also to be bad politics. >> can you help me understand specifically what the president wants to pursue in the second term on this? is this something -- does he have legislation that he'd like to see congress passed? are we back to cap and trade? what specifically does he want to do that he didn't do in the first place? >> i think president has longed supported climate change. i think bipartisan opposition to legislative action is still a reality, the president's position remains the same as it was in the first term. he looks forward to building on the achievements made in the first term and he looks at this in a broadway because this isn't deficit reduction, for example, is not a goal onto itself. we pursue it in order to help the economy and help create jobs. otherwise it's not worth the effort, in his mind. >> mike pence delivers his first state of the state address tonight. we'll have that live for you at 7:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. tomorrow, secretary of state hillary clinton testifies on capitol h
in the red for 2012. the world's third biggest economy has posted a trade deficit of $78.3 billion. u.s. house ever presented this has passed a bill to extend the debt limit until may. it effectively put off the possibility of the u.s. defaulted on its debt. three weeks earlier, congress and the white house hammered out the last-minute deal to prevent the so-called fiscal cliff. the u.s. debt stands at $16.50 trillion. the british prime minister has been building on wednesday's historic speech about his country's future with the european union. david carolwood speaking at the world economic forum -- david cameron was speaking at the world economic forum in switzerland. >> britain has a choice purdue and hope it stands back and the argument -- britain has a choice. they can stand back or say yes, the european union needs to change to suit the euro but also to suit all of us as well. make the argument for a flexible, competitive euro, take the british people with you. >> south africa is looking at newark power for its future nuclear ended -- at nuclear power for its future and nuclear e

state of the economy. it looks like now things are almost reversed in a way. tell us about your conversation with cameron. >> when i interviewed prime minister cameron here in new york and he was sort of in the lion's den because he had thrown down the gauntlet with this speech about britain's position in the european union. britain is not fully in in terms of it is not part of the eurozone. it doesn't have the euro but in many aspects it is in and it is a full member. united states depends on britain for the very strong role in international affairs. it helps all over the place whether in trying to confront iran, syria and north korea with sanctions and plays a big role whether afghanistan, iraq. david cameron is saying we like our foreign role. we like you and our economic role in the e.u. but we don't want to be a part of your political role. he is trying to negotiate a half in/half out role for the u.k. that is very concerning to the u.s. because he has raised the stakes by saying he would put it to the british people in the referendum. if they vote to get out of the e.u. th
economy. incredibly hosni mubarak was ousted from power. however, at this point many egyptians not happy. the people behind us are not celebrating, they're protesting. >> i understand you spoke to a number of protesters. what is the issue here? what is the problem with the new leadership? why are they out on the streets? why are they upset? >> reporter: the opposition, the protesters have many issues. maybe that's one of their obstacles. not finding one issue to unite over. they're concerned because they say they've been pushed out of the political process. they're concerned about their rights. here's what that protester had to tell us. >> everybody is protesting. what did we get since two years? nothing. nothing achieved. >> reporter: the president says be patient. this is part of the process. >> we need a sign. look at the constitution. look at the constitution. is this a constitution for all egyptians? >> reporter: he said people voted on it. >> how many voted? 15 million or 52 million? 10 million said yes and can this be possible? >> reporter: do you trust the president? >> no. >> re
and the overall shape and direction of the economy. could you speak to that? >> i for started talking about it two years ago. -- i first started talking about it two years ago. i started talking about what was possible with oil. i was a lone wolf in the woods at the time. since then, the bandwagon has loaded up. a lot of other people are saying, yes, it could happen, and it to be very important for america. particularly as it translates from energy to the general economy. there are more pillars' out there, housing, manufacturing -- they depend on recovery. the one that does not is energy, because the international demand is already there. it has been created by china, india. all around the world. the weakened cash in on that. would not have to wait on it. -- we can cash in on that. we do not have to wait on it. we need to keep doing what we're doing. it is going to mean a tremendous amount of jobs. we have seen that all through the midwest. north dakota is certainly a huge example of it. they say now there is to% and unemployed -- 2% unemployed there. we cannot find those folks. [laughter] we're s
nonpartisan testimony that when the debt is this large in comparison to the economy, it costs the country the equivalent of about one million jobs. think about that. if washington got its debt and spending under control, one million more americans will be working today. and if that wasn't sobering enough, fitch ratings recently warned that the failure to come up with a plan for reducing our debt would likely still result in a downgrade of the u.s. credit rating. a lower credit rating is sure to mean higher interest rate. that meansigher credit card rates, higher student loans, certainly higher mortgage payments. despite these warnings, the democrat-controlled senate hasn'troduced a budget in 1,300 days, four years without a budget. how can we begin to get our debt under control when democrats won't even produce a budget this bill is the first step in forcing democrats to put forward a budget so we can start holding washington accountable for its out of control spending. every day, american families have to make decisions abtheir household finances. they have to adjust their spending to co
the economy and barack obama came on and was in a joef yell mood. >> for all of the talk we had during the campaign ofment o prt obama's ability to raise money it would be a million dollar campaign and the talk mitt romney had more corporate donors it would be a wash in cash. the president had no trouble raising enough money to get himself re-elected it is thanks in part to an incredible network he has built over the years. talk about the importance of money in this election, charles. >> he has never backed for money. in 2008 he was the first to go without the federal matching money so he could raise unlimited amounts he did and he crushed mccain in terms of the fundraising. he is commuting with the 53 percent his way of reaching to try to bring us all together after a campaign where he ran into 47 percent. it is a night where they are just having a good time. i wouldn't take any of it too seriously. it is a minor bit. you have to give him a pass on inauguration. he's having a good time and this is the money essentially to fund all of the festivities he which he won fair and square. >>
as we think about the economy of the united states coming and as you point out, the other developing countries around the world. one of the efforts of this administration has been to promote business advocacy abroad for domestic businesses at home. i led a trade mission to india about a year and a half ago with a number of businesses from new and church, and they talked about how important it was to have that support from the state officials in india as they were looking to try to establish those business relationships. can you talk about how you might continue that and continue that this is something you would be focused on an unwilling to continue to support? >> well, as i said in my opening, i think foreign policy is increasingly economic policy, and we have an undersecretary for economic affairs, economics, energy etc.. i think that the state department historical use to have a foreign commercial service back in 1979. it slipped away. i think the secretary had the time -- i think that is something we ought to be doing in a very significant way. obviously working with the treasury
economy, is social justice. not trying to manipulate a society, not trying to move toward a collectivist society. so there are fairly radical -- radically different visions of what creates social justice, what creates that opportunity. i think we as the conservatives, as those who are defenders of freedom, have to constantly be pushing. even when we're running against that brick wall we've got to keep running into it until eventually we knock parts of it down because heaven forbid if this president were to get his vision of the agenda, what would this country look like four years from now? >> talk a little bit more about the tax component of the republican agenda. when you talk about tax reform what does that mean? >> one of the thing that -- things that has some of us enthused, chairman camp, at least this is what i'm hear they spent two years holding hearings, collecting information about what a much broader base, lower rate, a lot less, you know, sorry to throw some acquaintances under the bus, lobbyist created carveouts, special extenders in the tax code would look leek and why do we
and a stable economy as a means to security and stability. i think the concerns are many. the concerns are around africa com in 2008 at a time when africa surpassed the middle east in its supply of oil to the united states and the concern of the u.s. of africa and oil and a vital resource is the true rationale for africacom, as well as countering china in that theater where china is increasing its influence. the concern was heightened before africacom was heightened. concern has grown over time. is there any effort to evaluate africacom? i understand your stepping down as a new commander steps in. there has been a congressional hearing on benghazi, but clearly there is a bigger issue at stake and that is u.s. foreign-policy with regards to africa. thank you. >> thank you. it will not surprise you that i disagree with most of what you said, which is ok here k. we live in a country where you can do that. it is true that the state department has the authority for security assistance matters. some of that 8-9,000,000,000 dollars that is spent in africa does in fact go to security assistanc
